- Cyber Liability – third party claims as a result of content in email, on the intranet, extranet or Website that may cause the 3rd party to suffer a loss
Claims for your own losses
- Breach Costs – reimbursement of your own costs when a data breach occurs

The New Privacy Act also came into effect in Australia on 12 March 2014, which gives the Privacy Commissioner greater enforcement powers, including the ability to penalise individuals up to $340,000 and $1.7million for corporations. Can you afford to cover these costs?
